1 Ounce Super Exotic – Northern Lights #5 (Indica)
Known by many as a “two-hit and quit” strain, Northern Lights slams the body into a wonderfully numbing, lazy mode. The desire to sit on the couch and listen to the call of munchies may be overwhelming to novice users even in lower doses.
Accompanying this body high is a nice sense of well-being and happiness. Some experienced users are reportedly instilled with increased creativity and focus as well.
Like most of its indica-based ancestors and descendants, Northern Lights is recommended for evening use and insomnia. It is one of the purest indica strains (95% indica, 5%. sativa) making it a highly sedative strain. It is also often chosen to relieve the effects of stress and anxiety. The heavy body high can weaken the chains of chronic pain. Strong appetite-inducing effects are helpful to those suffering from appetite loss and eating disorders.
Along with Haze and Skunk #1, Northern Lights is among the most influentials strains of all time. The #5 strain was first entered into competition in 1989. The strain quickly dominated the Cannabis Cup, winning in ’89, ’90, and ’92.
